They learn it before they learn the meanings - kids do not have a fancy voacalization- “prespeech” - they start to put words into pairs at 1- 20 months - 2-5 years of age is the critical period- if exposed to language, they pick it up pretty well - they cannot or will have a hard time learning to speak after this
